Fabulous Friday - I Found My Dress


This past weekend was a major moment for me! My mom, sister and I drove to Atlanta to visit Bridals by Lori which you may recognize as the location where they film Say Yes To The Dress Atlanta on TLC! This was the first time I was wedding dress shopping and I wanted to start looking for the perfect style. Plus, I had no idea I'd be finding "the one." Upon walking into Bridals by Lori I was instantly distracted by the fabulous wedding dress sketches by my favorite designers lining the wall. The whole place looked like it had been decorated by Rachel Zoe... It was beyond fabulous! 

We were wisked up stairs by the super sweet staff who waited on me hand and foot! I told them I wanted a dress that was fierce and dramatic! Surprisingly they said they've never heard any bride describe their dream dress like that. My seriously amazing consultant let us go around and pull dresses! I was in heaven. After sifting through hundreds of pounds of satin and lace I finally made my decisions which consisted of 12 stunning dresses. The first dress I tried on was seriously fabulous and beyond poofy. I was crushing on it but my fan club wasn't! I then put on the second dress which was absolute perfection. The second I slipped it on I was in love. After strutting the runway in the dress and somehow attracting almost every consultant in the store I knew this was "the one." In a few minutes Flori Waters and Robin Gibbs (pictured below) had me "jacked up" and looking wedding day ready! They literally gave me an up-do, earrings and my dream veil in 5 seconds! 

I decided to try on the rest of my dresses just to see if any other gown could  compete with the dress I was dying over. After quickly rejecting the rest of my selections I decided to slip back into my favorite dress. I just knew... This was the dress of my dreams! Classically dramatic and totally perfect! So long story short I got my wedding dress and veil! I bought them right on the spot! The seriously adorable Robin Gibbs was so sweet and beyond helpful! It's so hard not to gush about all of the dresses tiny faint worthy details, but I really want it to be a surprise. I have no idea how I'll be able to wait until May! If you or any of your friends are looking for a wedding dress I highly suggest going to Bridals by Lori, they are seriously the best! I can't wait until May to show you guys the dress I chose! Xoxo
